TravisO Posted October 22, 2006 Share Posted October 22, 2006 IE7 is a massive security overall from IE6 and whether you like it or not, parts of the OS makes calls to these APIs and HTML rendering DLLs. If you view some types of help, run MS Office, MS Money or use most any HTML editor then you are indirectly using IE. So go ahead and install IE7, it's actually faster than IE6 and doesn't use more memory. As an added bonus, installing IE7 won't change your default browser settings, so it won't steal focus away from Firefox or Opera or whatever you use.I'd say that IE7 is possibly the biggest security fix to Windows ever, but XP SP2 comes in a very close second. Only a fool would intentionally leave arguable insecure DLLs and APIs on their system, upgrade and forget about it.PS: yes I think the new UI In IE7 is quirky, even iTune-ish like. I know MS spends millions on user testing and is always taking steps to make their apps easier (for new users, current users don't really matter in the long run) but I'm not sure I like the new look of IE.PS: I have reposted this to my blog at http://thespoke.net/blogs/travisowens/arch...x_or_Opera.aspx Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
